Control Theory with Applications to Naval Hydrodynamics
by R. Timman
Number of pages: 84
The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints. The method of dynamic programming is also used to solve the unconstrained control problem. Stochastic systems are introduced, and the Kalman-Bucy filter is derived.

The purpose of this book is to provide both worked examples and additional problems with answers. A major objective is to enable the reader to develop confidence in analytical work by showing how calculations can be checked using Matlab/Simulink.

Using the tools of optimal control, robust control and adaptive control, the authors develop the theory of high performance control. Topics include performance enhancement, stabilizing controllers, offline controller design, and dynamical systems.

A trend of investigation of Nonlinear Control Systems has been present over the last few decades. This book includes topics such as Feedback Linearization, Lyapunov Based Control, Adaptive Control, Optimal Control and Robust Control.

Model Predictive Control refers to a class of control algorithms in which a dynamic process model is used to predict and optimize process performance. From lower request to complicated process plants, MPC has been accepted in many practical fields.
